If someone were to ask you what it is that makes Mount
Union dear to your heart, you would probably forget the
buildings, the campus, the books, and you would answer
that it is the personalities with Whom you have come in
contact, the loyal sons and daughters with whom you have
Worked and played and learned and of Whom you yourself
are one. To you, then, to all of us who are the life-blood of
the College, We dedicate this book, hoping it will bring
happy thoughts and memories of an ever-growing Mount

H I S T O B' Y But at least our goal vxlje'v2eVfnaIdee.'?
Approximately four years ago, our, class of two hundred
students entered Mountg of that number, ninety-eight are
graduating. The question is: what has happened to the
other students 'Z Some have lost step with their fellow stu-
dentsg several have gone on aheadg and a few have preferred
the outside world.
Dr. William M. lVlO1'g2L11, Senior Class Patron
We saw the installation of chapel "cuts" and the at-
tempt to have formal rushing for the fraternities. When
we were sophomores, one of our outstanding activities was
the all-college dance. And just remember our Junior-Senior
Prom! - the thousands of balloons, forming a rainbowg
and, at the end, the pot of gold enclosing the orchestra.
When We were juniors, We realized the swiftness of
time, and now, as seniors, we regret more than ever that the
time has come to leave Mount Union.
With our history drawing to a close, we hope that We
have left with our Alma Mater records of achievements that
will be an inspiration as Well as a challenge to those who
are to follow.

We, as juniors, are still endeavoring to keep the pro-
verbial "chin up" although f'seniorhood" with all its re-
sponsibilities is upon us. We still exist under the illusion
that We shall win more honors than any class before us!
With such spirit, it is easy to see Why our class has been
outstanding up to this time. We inaugurated the freshmen
and sophomore dances, to which only members of our class
were invited. This established a precedent soon to become
a tradition. We were the first class to run the gauntlet of
Dr. Ohnier H. Engle, Junior Class Patron
comprehensive exams. With the J unior-Senior Prom an
overwhelming success, for what more could the Class of '41
hope? We are active in every campus organization, and our
scholars are of the best - just ask any junior!
Taking the feathers out of our caps for a moment to
think of the more serious aspects of "seniorhood," We accept
e of the Class of '40 to catch the torch and keep
the standard high.

Safe over the freshman bumps and Well on its Way, the
Class of 1942 has the definite distinction of a palpitating
past and a flabbergasting future. Every activity around
Mount has its sophomore representatives, who really know
what "extra-curricular" means.
The Irish in the "sophs" burst out on March 15, when
the class turned out for a Saint Patrick's Day dance.
Brogues flew thick and fast as sophomore still tried to ex-
plain to sophomore how the freshmen happened to win the
bag rush - but that is best forgotten.
DT. Eric Eckler, Sophomore Class Patron
Not long after that outstanding event, the sophs spent
a pleasant day in the Chapel taking comprehensive exams
- and we do mean comprehensive! But sophomores will

The Class of '43, according to predictions, was apparent-
ly made up of valedictorians and assorted geniuses - but
what an understatement! From the night of its first .Jolly-
Up Prom, where the "hobo" king and queen ruled in tin-can
crowns over their "hobo" subjects, the freshmen crop looks
like the biggest and best yet.
Sweeping to decisive victory over the men of the sopho-
more class in the fall's traditional bag rush, Miller Hallis
Mentors proved the superiority of the younger generation,
and a glance at Elliott's finest will clinch the decision.

The "frosh" turned out almost en masse for their semi-
formal on February 2. We might add that the "frosh"
turned out in good shape for Reconstruction Week, but we'll
forget what shape they were in after Reconstruction Week!
Taken as a group, the freshmen are enthusiastic not
only about their Work, but also about all campus organiza-
tions and activities!
Dr. Mabry was chosen by the class as advisor. May the
youngest hopes of Mount Union do him proud!

This publication is a novel undertaking which the Mount
Union Department of Economics started in October, 1939.
This paper, as far as is known, is the only student publica-
tion of its kindg and our Economics Department should be
congratulated upon its work. The staff is composed of stu-
dents majoring in economics who are selected on the basis
of ability. "Business Highlights" gives a summary of eco-
nomics material secured by careful examination of over sixty
business periodicals every month. This publication makes
it possible for a digest to be made of current events in the
field of business. The items of particular interest to the
students are selected by the staff for publication. Five
hundred copies a month are distributed free of charge to
students in economics and history departments, to the
trustees of Mount Union, to alumni desiring copies, to li-
braries, and to colleges and universities in Ohio.

"Who's Who among Students in American Universities
and Colleges" was created on a national basis five years ago.
It is meant to serve as an incentive for students to get the
most out of their college careers, a compensation to students
for what they have already done. The members, whose
biographies are contained in an annual publication, are chos-
en by a faculty committee. Qualities considered are char-
acter, leadership in extra-curricular activities, scholarship,
and potentialities for future usefulness to society.

was done at Martin Airfield under the instruction of Mr. Harry Renkert
and Mr. Benjamin Swineford. Early in the year the members of this
course organized a club which, it is hoped, will be installed at other schools
and be chartered as a fraternity. Several associate chapters have already
been formed at other schools. The organization is affiliated with the Na-

The Health and Physical Education Department of
Mount Union College has continued its efficient and diversi-
fied program. The department, in its effort to aiord all the
students some means of relaxation and enjoyment through
participation in some sport, presents a Well-rounded pro-
gram throughout the academic year.
The program presented by the Health and Physical
Education Department is built on a five-fold plan which is
made up of the following major divisions:
First: An examination for health and physical fitness,
administered to determine each student's ability and capa-
city for participation.
Robert D. Wright
Director of Physical Education
Head Basketball Coach
Second: A required program of physical education for
all freshmen and sophomores, in which instruction as well
as participation is stressed.
Third: A Well-rounded intramural program which
makes it possible for all of the students not participating in
inter-collegiate athletics to engage in sports.
Fourth: Inter-collegiate teams in football, basketball,
tennis, golf, track, and cross-country.
Fifth: Professional preparation of teachers in health
and physical education through the study of teaching and
Mount Union College is particularly Well Htted by tradi-
tion, by present facilities, and by a Well-qualified staff of
teachers and coaches of physical education to offer a well-
rounded program to the student body.
Head Football Coach
Competing in football since 1893 and outstanding in
Ohio college football since 1907, Mount Union teams have
consistently been called upon to meet teams from larger
colleges. Early faculty opposition limited competition until
1902, when the first regular football coach was employed.
Before 1932, control of Mount Union football rested in
the hands of an independent organization known as the
Mount Union Athletic Association, administered by a grad-
uate manager. In that year the entire control of athletics
was brought under faculty supervision, and this control is
now centralized under the administrative officers of the col-
Loose eligibility requirements came to an end when
Mount Union became a member of the Ohio Athletic Con-
ference in 1914. Since then, increasing restrictions limit
competition to those students who are able to maintain a
high level of academic work.
Football is recognized at Mount Union today as possess-
ing great educational possibilities and is organized and ad-
ministered as a part of our broad program of health and
physical education. Fitting football into the educational
objectives of the college and decreasing the commercial
emphasis of the football program have been the aims of
Mount Union faculty control.

Johns, then a student director of physical training here.
The first intercollegiate basketball game ever to be played
took place in Morgan Gymnasium in 1892. The succeeding
years have brought the sport to ever-increasing popularity.
The early varsity basketball teams used Morgan Gym-
nasium for their games until 1914. From 1914 to 1918. a
large skating rink in downtown Alliance was the site of the
contests. After 1918, the college games again returned to
Morgan Gymnasium until Soldiers' Memorial Hall was com-
pleted in 1921, after which it became the gathering-place
for the fans.
Mount Union widened the scope of its basketball games
by joining the Ohio Conference on June 6, 1914. Two years
later it won the conference championship, the first of a se-
ries of victories which followed in 1924, 1925, 1926, 1929,
1931, and 1932. The 1938 team completed a season of sev-
enteen victories and two defeats to win the mythical title
of State Champions of Ohio and to compile the greatest
number of victories ever credited to a single Mount Union
season. In 1928, 1933, 1934, and 1936, the teams fell just
short of a championship, finishing in the runner-up posi-
Basketball and its traditions have contributed greatly
to the personality of Mount Union College and have provid-
ed a strong unifying agency among students, alumni, fac-
ulty, and townspeople. While many educational policies
have changed since basketball began at Mount Union in
1891, the desire to excel in that sport still persists in the
hearts of many loyal supporters.

Jack has been the consistent main-stay of the team for the past
three seasons. He will be greatly missed by next year's squad.
"Dick", a senior, is noted for his ball-handling and his excellent
"Aggressive" is the word for John. He could always he counted
on to speed up a slow game.
"Binx" is a veteran whose experience has proved valuable to the
"Pappy,' won a varsity berth his first year. He has developed
into one of the best long shots of the Conference.

His consistently high scoring won him a regular place on the

What is so rare as a day in September, with the bees
beeing and the flowers flowering, to say nothing of the
"Back to School Movement" evidenced along about the
eleventh of this month. At the annual freshman mix-
er, Johnny Pickles, king of the "Hoboes", and Kay
Vance, queen of the same, held court. W. A. A. came
through with its annual supper hike later on in the
month. Fun!! The football team started the season
06 with a bang and a win from Albion.
Maybe it's just my kittenish urges, but wasn't the weath-
er a wee bit on this side of' colossal? But, to quote
Coleridge in his Dissertation on Roast Lamb, "If spring
is here, it won't be long till winter." Homecoming was
really a thing to write home about this year. The
rally and the Sing showed some of these Ugripin' fresh-
men" that Mount has school spirit in more ways than
one. The Alpha Xis and Sigma Nus came through at
the Sing, and the Alpha Chis and Phi Taus won the
awards for most appropriate decorations. Betty Geltz,
Tri Delta, shone as queen of the Homecoming Dance.
tMinor detail-Kent won the game -- but only by one
point.J Then, let's see, around Hallowe'en it seems to
me that I remember .a bit of a mix-up involving several
fellows, a few broken lights on campus, and a. few hours
in the local "hoose-jug."
I guess we won't forget very soon the super Stunt Night
of last November. Tri Delta took top honors among
the sororities with a take-off on "The Wizard of Oz",
and the Sig Alphs pla.ced first among the fraternities
with an original interpretation of Snow White. And,
of course, everyone remembers the nine Weeks' tests.
Need more be said? The Alpha Kappa Pi fall formal
and the Phi Tau and Sigma Nu Thanksgiving dinners
were high spots of the month, along with the sorority
sing, when all the "gals" took courage and serenaded
the fellows. November also saw the establishment of a
new tradition - an annual Dad's Day sponsored by
the Student Senate. Toward the end of the month ev-
eryone started asking for membership in the T. G. F. T.
Club itranslation: Thank God For Thanksgiving Clubl.
Only two weeks between Thanksgiving vacation and
the beginning of the Christmas "time-out," but in that
time a lot happened. There was "that gorgeous Jean
Miller, the Mogadore Killer", seen as the current lead
in "Kind Lady", with Barb Kirk and Dotty Ketcham
featured as morons. The Tri Deltas, A. T. Os. and
Sigma Nu's enjoyed their respective fall formals, and
the Kappa Deltas held their annual white rose dinner.
The basketball sea.son started with the W. and J.
game here. Then, of a certainty, came the Christmas
dinner fserved with all the trimmingsj, followed by the
annual dance. The next day was school, and even more
than the usual amount of sleeping in classes ensued.
And so home for the holidays.
Back to school again in time for a month of basketball
games, semester exams, Alpha Xi, Alpha Chi, and Sig
Alph formals, semester exams, snow, and more semes-
ter exams. Slogan appropriate for this month: 'AGO
Slow. Harvard Curve Ahead." With this sad note the
new year began, as usual, with resolutions to do a lot
of things and not to do a lot of things. By the by,
any one who still retains a New Year's resolution com-
pletely unsoiled and unbroken may order a coke on me
The freshmen threw a "shindig". Religious Emphas-
is Week was really inspiring with discussions of love,
courtship, and marriage. Valentine's Day came along
soon after and brought at least the iirst two of that
little threesome to the fore. It's funny how much a
little box of candy or a frilly piece of paper can mean.
Remember the Co-ed Prom, when all the girls went as
characters from the "funnies', and proved the old axiom
that "girls without boys are twice as much fun!" -- or
something. Bhicco Batlivala spoke in chapel and
charmed everyone with her accent, picturesque cos-
tume, and logical review of lndia's system of educa-
tion. The formal Washington's Birthday Ball was fun.
too, with its red, white, and blue decorations. Basket-
ball games and informal parties at the frat houses took
up any extra time in this month.
March came in like a roaring lion, as did most of the
fellows when they serenaded the sororities at the Fra-
ternity Sing on March 1. Then the very next night
the W. A. A. Leap Year Dance turned the poor males
right upside down, with the girls performing the man-
ly feats of opening doors, putting coats on backs, send-
ing corsages, carrying cosmetic bits, etc., etc. The
"Panhells" raised the roof at the Country Club with
their semi-formal dance. "Its only one buck for twog
doesn't that interest you?" The choir gallivanted to
Cleveland, Youngstown, Canton, and all points north
and south. When they hit the airwaves, everyone at
M. U. C. had his ears glued to the "tuning-in" sets. The
choir returned just in time for the All-College Athletic
Banquet. Paul Reed and Dr. Oberteuffer kept the ball
of wit rolling all evening-wonderful food, too. One of
the red-letter days of this month brought Vera Brittain's
chapel speech on what the present crises will mean to
the youth of today. 'The Yales beat the Harvards in the
girls' all-star basketball game. The sophomores threw
a Saint Patrick's Day Dance. S'hunk House gave quite
a swanky tea for the faculty and guests: gum drop
favors 'n everything. The Reverend McQueen, of last
year's Religious Emphasis Week, spoke at the "College
Night" service, and he really gave us some thoughts to
ponder over. Then, of course, came Easter, with its
beautiful sunrise, its half-frozen corsages, and its silly
hats. And after a week of being tired, of having
knowledge crammed down our throats along with nine
weeks' tests, we went home for a much-needed spring
In the Bulletin it says, "April 8-Classroom meetings
resume", but those are just high-sounding terms for
saying the last nine weeks at Mount for the seniors.
Sort of makes a funny-feeling lump start in the throat
and end up toward the middle of the backbone. We
went to the opera and saw "Carmen" with the French
students and tried to forget that "funny-feeling lump"
in the throat. We went to the A. X. D., P. K. T., A. C.
O., A. K. P., Signet, and S'. N. formals this month, and
elected Betty Anderson, Alpha Xi, the Beauty Queen to
be entered in a national contest The starvation lunch-
eon was fun, with soup and crackers at Memorial in-
stead of the regular lunch at Elliott. And then came
the Junior Prom! Will anyone ever forget that super
sunken garden? These juniors are some clever, yea,
man! The "day after" the prom fcalled by Kenny
McF'a11 and others "High School Day"J was a great suc-
cess as usual, and, also as usual, everyone felt more like
sleeping. CGuess that last bit doesn't narrow it down
to one particular day, but-J
Then along came May. Health was the keynote for the
first week, and Health NVeek ended with a bang-up
Health Hop. The Kappa Delta and Tri Delt formals
came next. And then May Day, The surprise queen
and the May Day Ball were wonderful. The schedule
of future events includes the annual formal W. A. A.
banquet, giving the old board their laurels and wishing
the new one good luck for next yearg the S. A. E. spring
formal, the Phi Tau and Sig Alph picnics, the Senior
S'upper at the Ketchams', Memorial Day, and the be-
ginning of semester exams. f0uch.J
By the time these exams are finished, we'll be finished,
too, but after that we might as well enjoy ourselves at
baccalaureate on the ninth, the senior girls' breakfast
on the tenth, along with recognition chapel service and
senior class day program. The same night, the campus
illumination, and then the night of nights - the Com-
mencement Dance. After that, well - here's to ya,
